Jubilee Bridge

client: Christ Church College, Oxford
engineer: Edward Morton, Peter Corcoran
status: Planning Approved
value: TBC

We were appointed to produce options for a new bridge to provide more suitable pedestrian access from Christ Church Meadow to Christ Church’s sports ground over the River Cherwell.

A range of design options were prepared in both timber and steel.

A comprehensive report was produced considering the design options in relation to the following:

  • Environmental/ecological issues
  • Consent requirements
  • Construction practicalities
  • Accessibility
  • Security
  • Maintenance/durability
  • Budget
  • Visual impact

The final design is shown, the chosen form of construction being curved steel circular hollow sections with an oak boarded walkway.

Construction is due to start in May 2013 and completion by the autumn.
